Nobu Indian Wells represents the latest addition to Chef Matsuhisa’s empire of Asian fusion restaurants. It was constructed in tandem with new Stadium 2 at Indian Wells Tennis Garden and completed just weeks before the 2014 BNP Paribas Open. Going from Schematic Design to Restaurant opening in just under six months, this unheard-of building schedule compares only to the menu. No detail was overlooked, nor underbuilt, as the Japanese Craftsman-style includes Brazilian Walnut Ipe wood floors, custom made teak furniture and cabinetry, open rafter ceiling, and works-of-art light fixtures. While no two Nobu’s are alike, this one offers the most unique sushi experience yet, offering window-front dining to the tennis matches. Rave reviews from fans and players alike poured in throughout the Open, most speaking to the unblemished perfection that is Nobu’s culinary trademark.
